Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Rochester
I have had a great experience with Metronet. Good speed at a good price. My previous provider was over charging for poor service.
Customer Service Issues
I don't have a lot of internet options in my area. Charter Spectrum is basically the only option we have. The service is alright, it's definitely not the fastest and it cuts out occasionally. But, I can generally do what I need to do. However, I am appalled at the customer service experience I just had. I have been receiving increasing amounts of paper ads for adding additional services. It's up to twice or three times a week. I was getting really frustrated at this waste of valuable paper resources, this is the only company I work with that sends that much. So I reached out to their customer service through a chat feature. They provided me with a link to take my name off their mailing list. Great. However, when I asked if I could speak with someone regarding this feedback or send a letter I was told no one would be speaking with me and there was nowhere to send a letter. The marketing they do is so incredibly wasteful, if I had another option I would probably switch so as not to support this.
Great price for great service.
Living in an area not serviced by cable internet, it has been difficult finding an internet service that can meet our needs that is affordable. LTD definitely meets and exceeds our expectations. Thank you!
